For new woodworking projects or restoration, our best selling tung oil based wood finish

Inspired by varnishes created for early violin and cello finishing, Walrus Oil's Furniture Butter is meticulously made in a proprietary 4-stage brewing process. The end result is an incredibly versatile oil and wax-based finish that penetrates wood surfaces, pulling out natural wood colors and tones, and locking them in permanently with a natural seal. The rosin and hard waxes add sheen and provides water protection after fully cured. Furniture Butter can be used as a completely standalone product and "one n done" solution. It also can be used after our Furniture Finish or before our Furniture Wax. Handcrafted with Tung Oil, Polymerizing Safflower Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Carnauba Wax, Candelilla Wax, Pine Rosin, and Lime Oil.

Use on hardwoods that are sanded between 220 - 400 grit. The lower the grit, the deeper the oil will soak. The higher the grit, the smoother the wood will feel. To prevent raised grain, always use the "sand, wet, sand" method. Apply thin layer of oil until entire surface is covered. Wipe away excess after 24 hrs. Repeat until desired number of coats and look is achieved. After final coat, allow 24 - 48 hrs for surface to become dry to touch. May take up to 1 week to be completely dry to touch and up to 4 weeks to be completely cured. While curing, it's ideal for the wood piece to be kept in a temperature controlled environment. Humidity and high heat can prolong cure time. Keep liquids off surface for up to 4 weeks.

Product Care
For best results use by expiration date on bottle. Store at room temperature or in a cool and dry place. Keep bottle sealed when not in use.

Great product to bring out the natural wood grain.

Great product. I apply directly on wood to bring out the natural beauty of the grain when I feel that stain is not needed.

Simply the Best

I've used Furniture Butter on all types of woods, and the finish is consistent time after time, is satiny and brings out grains and colors nicely. It's the only product that I use now for my sculpture bases. Thank you!

Great Stuff!

I think it should be called Furniture Apple Sauce. But, whatever the name, I think it's great! I am into mid century right now so I use a lot of Walnut and I really like the application, look, feel, and overall finish I get. Furniture Finish, followed by Furniture Butter, then Furniture Wax is my go to application for almost everything I make.

great addition

I added this into my finishing process to get a little more sheen after using the furniture finish. I think it does the trick. It ticks it up a notch, but you're not going to get any dramatic sheen from it. You still have a very natural soft look but it does add a little more grain pop, I think. I think their descriptions on the site are accurate. It does cost a bit more overall but I think its worth it.
